What Is EC Online Gallery?
The name of this online gallery, "Electronic Cottage", was inspired by the visionary book "The Electronic Cottage" by Joseph Deken (published by William Morrow & Co), which in 1981 heralded the future of the personal computer. This seminal book was a wide-ranging discussion of things computers can do, how they work, and how they will change our everyday lives by revolutionizing the home and our daily activities. "The Electronic Cottage" became a national bestseller and garnered Science Selection of the Book of the Month Club and other honors, including multiple translations. The original Joseph Deken book is readily available via online booksellers, such as Amazon.
This arts portal is first and foremost a direct connection between those individuals who enjoy purchasing originally created handmade art & craft work, and those professionals who enjoy creating that work. The extent of this connection is only made possible through the use of computers and the World Wide Web, exactly as Joseph Deken predicted decades ago.
At EC Gallery, there is no need to join a club, become a member, make up a username, remember a password, leave us your email, or jump through any other hoops. All we ask is that you sit back and enjoy your visits to the studio websites of the immensely talented people from around the world who exhibit via this online gallery.
While it is true that many of the "mall stores" that proliferate on the WWW were begun by people who have no real relationship with the products they offer for sale, this is not the case at ElectronicCottage. EC was originally established by artists who have been long-term exhibitors at the best juried crafts festivals all around the United States, and who now retain that same level of excellence for their online visitors. The high quality exhibitors listed here who shared this vision are from countries all over the world.
This lifetime committment to the intrinsic value of original handmade work is what gives ElectronicCottage its unique stature as one of the most respected online galleries on the World Wide Web... we hope you will enjoy your visit, and will come back often!
